Not long after these photos were taken, the station
was closed and the antenna was moved to the main DSN complex at Robledo de Chavel.
The modified 26-meter antenna. The old quadrapod was removed and replaced with a self-supporting subreflector in the GSTDN retrofit in about 1975.
In 1985 this antenna was relocated to the Robledo DSN complex by Joe Kuberth of GSFC GSTDN Engineering.
